Grilled Pork Chops with Ginger Barbecue Sauce

Total time: 30 minutes
     At first glance it seems like a lot of ginger in this recipe - both on the chops and in the sauce.  But it works well, adding an underlying flavor that is not too 'ginger-y' or particularly hot; just a tiny kick....  When you are marinating meat it helps to poke it with a fork, to let the marinade penetrate.

General Technical Details and Disclaimer:

Note:  Pork chops vary greatly in calories; this assumes top loin chops with fat trimmed but not completely removed.  Center cut chops are higher; sirloin cut chops are lower.

Another Note:  It's assumed that 1 tbs of the oil gets left behind. ie. not eaten.

Measurements are actual measurements used for calculation. If there are no values the nutritional numbers were simply too small.

I try to be accurate, but I do not guarantee it.  I use 'grams' as the unit of weight; with an approximate conversion to ounces.
